I’ve Seen Fall, But Not Much Rain

I woke up this morning to overcast skies and dense fog dancing around our tall Redwoods.  It doesn’t get light until almost 7:00 a.m. these days with our time shifted to Pacific Standard Time.

I went out with Beau for his morning stretch. We walked around the wet front yard. The news said, the Bay Area got 1/10 of an inch of rain on the average. Most of the rain blanketed the mountains, awarding them 3/4 of an inch of rain today. We do need the rain in our yard, our town, our state.  1/10 of an inch is like letting a kid have one lick of your lollipop and then you take it away.

The flowers on my front porch are on their last tour of duty for the year. They still provide good cheer most mornings. I have taken care to water them at least every other day. Just the pots. Not soaking trailing water wet. Just enough for them to sprout their blooms for me.  We do have to be mindful of the drought conditions the entire state is in. In a few weeks, I will have to cut them all back for their winter slumber.  Sigh!
